Sure, there have been some exceedingly cheesy live action iterations of the The Lone Ranger, but there have also been some dark, brilliant, visionary versions in the comics as of late. Which way will Disney be taking it with Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer starring? Your guess is as good as ours… have a look at this mini-featurette and three exclusive scenes from the movie and get a bit of an idea for yourself. Johnny Depp DID nearly get trampled to death by horses making it, so that’s not nothing.
Watch 8-minutes of the musical event of the year with advanced footage from the film and cast & crew interviews. Will the Oscar-winning director of the King’s Speech bring us a ground-breaking filmed version of the mega-hit musical? Or will the experimental recording method ruin what hardcore musical geeks have been falling in love with since the 80′s? Musical geeks are split on what we might be in for… so take a look and let us know what YOU think!
Sneak Peek… kinda. Hugh Jackman is Wolverine as Jean Valjean and Russel Crowe as Gladiator is Javert in the new musical “Les Miserables”! Enjoy this comedic take on the casting Les Miserables, directed and VFXed by Matt, starring Melissa D’Agostino and Adam Lazarus… and Hugh Jackman and Russel Crowe!
Just when you thought the Wachowski’s hit rock bottom with Speed Racer,the worst cartoon racing movie of all time, they manage to make Cloud Atlas, the worst Sci-Fi Film, the worst Pirate Movie, the worst Zany Geriatric Escape-Comedy, the worst Victorian Romance, the worst 70′s Blaxploitation flick, AND the worst Post-Apocalyptic Fantasy film ALL AT ONCE, smashing them into the most excruciatingly unbearable 3-hour marathon of audience abuse ever made.
Once it stole 3 hours of our lives away and we felt the deep responsibility to prevent it from happening to you… and yet we can’t bring ourselves to shoot a video review, thereby allowing more precious moments of our lives to be sacrificed on the altar of Cloud Atlas.
At least, not when it comes to Judge Dredd. As far as we’re concerned, Karl Urban is the law. Thanks to a pitch-perfect R-rated action film, Judge Dredd has finally made it to the screen in a way that is true to the comics that he first appeared in. Brutal, unflinching, and tough as nails, Dredd NEVER takes his helmet off in the film, and Matt was giddy as has was when he was 11 years old and reading his first 2000 A.D. Without any frame of reference but Sly’s miserable turn in the role in 1995, Nat definitely enjoyed the movie, while not on the level Matt did. What did you think? Let us know!
In an attempt to simultaneously capitalize on a long-running, brilliant UK comic, the superhero-movie craze, and the movie-going audience’s apparent tolerance for reboots, we’ve got a new Judge Dredd movie on our hands. With the always-awesome Karl Urban on board as the man himself, and rumours that he never (rightly) takes the helmet off, a 2000 A.D.-loving Matt is already seeing hope for this indie, but Nat has no frame of reference for Judge Dredd other than Sly’s abysmal 1995 turn in the role.
We were both completely bloody beside ourselves watching the single greatest comic book movie ever made (Nolan who?). But even in Joss’ near perfect comicbook movie with it’s 200M opening weekend, we had a few nits to pick here and there… but hey, we’re geeks!
Tonight is the THE night: midnight screenings of the Avengers abound and the true believers will be strapped in for one hell of a ride when the clock strikes twelve… we’ve got our tickets! So let’s amp up with a little bit of Cap & Thor side by side smackdown and we’ll see you for the review!
